While the Golden State Warriors are awaiting Stephen Curry’s return, they hope to celebrate with him for another reason other than his presence.
The superstar is expected to receive his second NBA’s Most Valuable Player of his career according to ESPN. Curry’s numbers speak for themselves on arguably the greatest regular season ever, something Michael Jordan didn’t even accomplish.
Curry averaged 30 points, 6.7 assists and 5.4 rebounds, obliterating the three point record at 402. He surpassed his previous record by 116, which is insane to think about from a team who also set an all-time regular season record at 73-9.
The Warriors now hope that he will back healthy and in time for the western conference finals. Everyone is talking about the Cavaliers getting on a roll from downtown, setting records almost every game and look to continue that trend throughout the postseason. But the Warriors have a chip on their shoulders to prove the critics wrong, making an effort to win the championship yet again.
